Protect: partial content blocking
Sometimes dangerous elements from infected resources (banners, scripts, or sidebars) or mining scripts can show up on otherwise safe sites. The Protect integrated security system is used in Yandex Browser to block these elements. The data on unsafe resources is taken from a special database compiled by Yandex and our partners.
Blocking dangerous elements
If the page you want to visit contains elements from infected sites, Yandex Browser blocks them. The icon appears in the SmartBox.
If you want to load blocked content:
- Tap .
- In the Block ads on this site section, click Learn more.
- Click Unblock for this tab.
If blocked content is a serious threat to your computer, you will not be able to load it. In this case, there will be no Learn more link in the Block ads on this site section.
Because the browser only downloads secure elements, the page may be formatted incorrectly.
To disable dangerous content blocking:
- Tap .
- Go to the Security tab at the top of the page.
- In the Threat security section, disable the Run security checks on websites and downloaded files option.
Use the same algorithm to re-enable blocking of dangerous content.
Blocking mining scripts
To prevent miners from earning money using your computer's resources, Yandex Browser blocks mining scripts from sites. Scripts can be blocked even if they are yet unknown to the browser. The browser analyzes the CPU load generated by sites and uses this data to block previously unknown mining scripts.
If you want to stop blocking mining scripts, disable ad filters in the browser.
